Packet pickup day
That is all.
Tri on Sunday with Ren. Need time in saddle on the bike. Have yet to ride outside since the aerobars went on. Need/want pool time. Might ride the bike to the gym. It’s only 5 miles each way. But, in all honesty, the idea of riding in traffic kinda scares me.
Need new goggles
I was so paranoid Saturday while we were out at the lake about getting water in my eyes (not suppose to swim for *at least* another week) that I had my goggles so tight that my eyes feel bruised now. Anybody have suggestions for goggles that don’t fit right in the eye socket?
Is Tridad still alive?
I don’t know how long it should take for him to hit halfway on the bike, but the IMCDA website has not up0dated his split since T1. Anybody know?

Car air conditioners work better with coolant. Hey, single guys - I also know how to change my own oil, change a tire, and jump off a vehicle. I’m also extremely low maintenance.
I’m going to have to make a general, heartfelt apology to the lake fishies for their fallen comrade in the break room. Don’t want my toes chomped.

I don’t know where I got this link originally. Probably from someone here. But I thought it worth sharing (again).
Would it be wrong?
If I skipped supper in favor of icecream?
Lasik was yesterday
Followup this morning. From 20/60 to 20/15 over night. Eyes are still scratchy, but I can be in the house without sunglasses now.
Jose - were you asking or telling me? Also put a new saddle on her. Stock saddle was causing discomfort in delicate lady bits. Eventually I plan on using those bits again, so it would be nice to have feeling in them.
There you are DOMS. Sneaky bastard.
LASIK on Friday afternoon
Better get all my pre-tri swimming done in the next few days since I won’t be able to swim, even with goggles, for 2 weeks. That’ll put me back in the pool just in time for the next tri. I’ve never gotten to say “I’m a triathlete…” out loud before today.
It is weird. I can see at a distance but not close enough to see my phone. And Houston survived my dilated eye driving. 😱
Day After - the report
Not as sore today as I expected, but my quads and triceps definitely know they worked yesterday. I can walk, which is a plus, and if I concentrate I can do it without a limp or being too slow. Thank goodness there’s no strength training planned for today.
Bike fit and aero bars
Scheduled a bike fit for Wednesday after work. The seat isn’t angled quite right - too high in the front. I couldn’t figure out how to change it myself last night. I’m still within the 6 month window since purchase of bike so the fitting is free. However… If I’m going to be there and scheduled for an hour anyway, I might as well have them add the aerobars and fit...
